Music has been part of what it means to be human since time immemorial. Cave paintings depict people playing and dancing with animals and the discovery of a bone flute puts music even further into the Paleolithic times. Whether it is a baby’s first lullaby or Amazing Grace as we are laid to rest, music is a part of every culture and every child. Somewhere along the line, someone decided music was a luxury; something that could be put away for better times. This is a dire mistake. Music is not something extracurricular. History shows that music will not be put aside. Whenever we try to put music...
The Chaos - G.N. Trenite
Dearest creature in creation
Studying English pronunciation,
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse and worse.
I will keep you, Susy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy;
Tear in eye, your dress you'll tear;
Queer, fair seer, hear my prayer.
Pray, console your loving poet,
Make my coat look new, dear, sew it!
Just compare heart, hear and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word.
Sword and sward, retain and Britain
(Mind the latter how it's written).
Made has not the sound of bade,
Say-said, pay-paid, laid but plaid.

Julie Ann is a teacher first, a learning being second and above all a passionate driven woman. Her love of music and the arts began early and has been blooming ever since. Julie Ann cannot help but learn new things, whether they are new ways of doing things or diving into learning of yet another instrument. This blog was born of these drives as well as the unfortunate lack of this type of resource. Enjoy!
Earned her Bachelor of Arts in Music Studies: June of 2005
at University of Massachusetts: Lowell
Began private music instruction in 1998.

I'd like to begin this post by admitting that I'm admittedly biased, but if the following graph is to be believed, so was America last year.
When American Idol first came out, I was excited. Finally a new way to find musicians that aren't only the ones the big companies find or/are feeding us. The auditions were filled with talent off the street which showed up because at some point someone said they have what it takes to be a star. As the show progressed we realize that not every parent was truthful to their children. Either that, or even the parents are tone deaf.
